Pandemonium! Chaos! Whatever.Yes, everyone took a beating today and there’s a lot of uncertainty about IPOs on the horizon like Groupon. But per Peter Kafka’s request, here are 5 stocks that went up today. (And no, you probably haven’t heard of any of them.)

  • VoIP company BroadSoft (BSFT) up 18% on strong earnings and guidance.
  • General Finance Corporation (GFN), an industrial company in Australia and New Zealand, up 22%.
  • Lifetime Brands (LCUT), “North America’s leading resource for nationally branded kitchenware, tabletop, home décor, and lifestyle products,” up 5% after earnings.
  • A bunch of ultra-short and bear market ETFs.
  • ChinaEdu Corp. (CEDU) up 37% for no reason I could find.

Update: Tesla (TSLA), the electric car company, is flat — which is the new up — after Merrill Lynch/BofA initiated coverage with a buy rating.
